xSeries 206m Types 8485 and 8490: Installation Guide
Chapter 2. Installing options
This chapter provides basic instructions for installing hardware options in the server.
These instructions are intended for users who are experienced with setting up IBM
server hardware. If you need more detailed instructions, see the User’s Guide on
the IBM xSeries Documentation CD.
Installation guidelines
Before you install options, read the following information:
v Read the safety information that begins on page v, the guidelines in “Working
inside the server with the power on” on page 8, and “Handling static-sensitive
devices” on page 9. This information will help you work safely.
v Observe good housekeeping in the area where you are working. Place removed
covers and other parts in a safe place.
v If you must start the server while the cover is removed, make sure that no one is
near the server and that no tools or other objects have been left inside the
server.
v Do not attempt to lift an object that you think is too heavy for you. If you have to
lift a heavy object, observe the following precautions:
– Make sure that you can stand safely without slipping.
– Distribute the weight of the object equally between your feet.
– Use a slow lifting force. Never move suddenly or twist when you lift a heavy
object.
– To avoid straining the muscles in your back, lift by standing or by pushing up
with your leg muscles.
v Make sure that you have an adequate number of properly grounded electrical
outlets for the server, monitor, and other devices.
v Back up all important data before you make changes to disk drives.
v Have a small flat-blade screwdriver available.
v You do not have to turn off the server to install or replace hot-swap power
supplies, hot-swap fans, or hot-plug Universal Serial Bus (USB) devices.
v Blue on a component indicates touch points, where you can grip the component
to remove it from or install it in the server, open or close a latch, and so on.
v Orange on a component or an orange label on or near a component indicates
that the component can be hot-swapped, which means that if the server and
operating system support hot-swap capability, you can remove or install the
component while the server is running. (Orange can also indicate touch points on
hot-swap components.) See the instructions for removing and installing a specific
hot-swap component for any additional procedures that you might have to
perform before you remove or install the component.
v When you have to access the inside of the server, you might find it easier to lay
the server on its side. Before laying the server on its side, rotate the two front
stabilizing feet a quarter turn inward toward the server, so that they do not break.
Before returning the server to an upright position, rotate the front stabilizing feet
a quarter turn outward from the server.
v When you are finished working on the server, reinstall all safety shields, guards,
labels, and ground wires.
v For a list of supported options for the server, see http://www.ibm.com/servers/
eserver/serverproven/compat/us/.

System reliability guidelines
To help ensure proper system cooling and system reliability, make sure that the
following requirements are met:
v Each of the drive bays has a drive or a filler panel and electromagnetic
compatibility (EMC) shield installed in it.
v There is adequate space around the server to allow the server cooling system to
work properly. Leave approximately 50 mm (2 in.) of open space around the front
and rear of the server. Do not place objects in front of the fans. For proper
cooling and airflow, replace the server cover before turning on the server.
Operating the server for extended periods of time (more than 30 minutes) with
the server cover removed might damage server components.
When installing the server in a rack, make sure that space is available around
the server to enable the server cooling system to work properly. See the
documentation that comes with the rack for additional information.
v You have followed the cabling instructions that come with optional adapters.
v You have replaced a failed fan within 48 hours.
v You have replaced a hot-swap drive within 2 minutes of removal.
Working inside the server with the power on
Attention: Static electricity that is released to internal server components when
the server is powered-on might cause the server to halt, which could result in the
loss of data. To avoid this potential problem, always use an electrostatic-discharge
wrist strap or other grounding system when working inside the server with the
power on.
The server supports hot-plug, hot-add, and hot-swap devices and is designed to
operate safely while it is turned on and the cover is removed. Follow these
guidelines when you work inside a server that is turned on.
v Avoid wearing loose-fitting clothing on your forearms. Button long-sleeved shirts
before working inside the server; do not wear cuff links while you are working
inside the server.
v Do not allow your necktie or scarf to hang inside the server.
v Remove jewelry, such as bracelets, necklaces, rings, and loose-fitting wrist
watches.
v Remove items from your shirt pocket, such as pens and pencils, that could fall
into the server as you lean over it.
v Avoid dropping any metallic objects, such as paper clips, hairpins, and screws,
into the server.

xSeries 206m Types 8485 and 8490: Installation Guide
Handling static-sensitive devices
Attention: Static electricity can damage the server and other electronic devices.
To avoid damage, keep static-sensitive devices in their static-protective packages
until you are ready to install them.
To reduce the possibility of electrostatic discharge, observe the following
precautions:
v Limit your movement. Movement can cause static electricity to build up around
you.
v The use of a grounding system is recommended. For example, wear an
electrostatic-discharge wrist strap, if one is available. Always use an
electrostatic-discharge wrist strap or other grounding system when working inside
the server with the power on.
v Handle the device carefully, holding it by its edges or its frame.
v Do not touch solder joints, pins, or exposed circuitry.
v Do not leave the device where others can handle and damage it.
v While the device is still in its static-protective package, touch it to an unpainted
metal surface on the outside of the server for at least 2 seconds. This drains
static electricity from the package and from your body.
v Remove the device from its package and install it directly into the server without
setting down the device. If it is necessary to set down the device, put it back into
its static-protective package. Do not place the device on the server cover or on a
metal surface.
v Take additional care when handling devices during cold weather. Heating reduces
indoor humidity and increases static electricity.

Installing a memory module
The following notes describe the types of dual inline memory modules (DIMMs) that
the server supports and other information that you must consider when installing
DIMMs:
v The server supports industry-standard, 533/667 MHz, PC2-4200,
double-data-rate 2 (DDR2) dual inline memory modules (DIMMs).
v The system board contains four DIMM connectors and supports two-way memory
interleaving.
v The DIMM options available for the server are 512 MB, 1 GB, and 2 GB. The
server supports a minimum of 512 MB and a maximum of 8 GB of system
memory.
v The server comes with one 512 MB DIMM or two 512 MB DIMMs installed.
Depending on the DIMM sizes that you select, the server also supports two or
four DIMMs. The 512 MB DIMM option kit contains one DIMM; however, the 1
GB DIMM and 2 GB option kits each contain two DIMMs.
v The amount of usable memory will be reduced depending on the system
configuration. A certain amount of memory must be reserved for system
resources. To view the total amount of installed memory and the amount of
configured memory, run the Configuration/Setup Utility program and select
System Summary from the menu. For additional information, see the User’s
Guide on the IBM xSeries Documentation CD.
v For two-way memory interleaving, DIMMs must be installed in matched pairs.
If one DIMM is installed in the DIMM 1 connector, when you install an additional
DIMM, it must be installed in the DIMM 3 connector, and it must be the same
size, speed, type, and technology as the DIMM in the DIMM 1 connector. You
can mix compatible DIMMs from various manufacturers.
If you install a second pair of DIMMs in the DIMM 2 and DIMM 4 connectors,
they do not have to be the same size, speed, type, and technology as the
DIMMs in the DIMM 1 and DIMM 3 connectors. However, the size, speed, type,
and technology of the DIMMs that you install in the DIMM 2 and DIMM 4
connectors must match each other.
v Install only 1.8 V, 184-pin, double-data-rate 2 (DDR2), 533/667 MHz, PC2-4200,
unbuffered synchronous dynamic random-access memory (SDRAM) with error
correcting code (ECC) DIMMs. These DIMMs must be compatible with the latest
DDR2 533/667 MHz SDRAM unbuffered DIMM specification. For a list of
supported options for the server, see http://www.ibm.com/servers/eserver/
serverproven/compat/us/; then, select your country and navigate to the list of
options for the server.
v When you restart the server after adding or removing a DIMM, the server

Installing a hot-swap hard disk drive in bay 4, 5, 6, or 7
This procedure applies only to server models that have hot-swap hard disk drives.
Some server models come with SAS or SATA hot-swap hard disk drives. Before you
install a hot-swap hard disk drive, read the following information:
v The hot-swap drives must be either all SAS hard disk drives or all SATA hard
disk drives; the two types cannot be combined.
v Inspect the drive tray for signs of damage.
v Make sure that the drive is correctly installed in the tray.
v To maintain proper system cooling, do not operate the server for more than 10
minutes without either a drive or a filler panel installed in each drive bay.
v You do not have to turn off the server to install hot-swap drives in the hot-swap
drive bays.
The server hot-swap bays are connected to a SAS/SATA backplane. This
backplane, also known as the hot-swap-drive backplane, is the printed circuit board
behind these bays.
Attention: Static electricity that is released to internal server components when
the server is powered-on might cause the server to stop, which could result in the
loss of data. To avoid this potential problem, always use an electrostatic-discharge
wrist strap or other grounding system when working inside the server with the
power on.
Note: If you install the maximum number of hot-swap hard disk drives (four),
remove the EMC shield that is attached inside the lower bezel.

Power and signal cables for internal drives
The server uses cables to connect parallel IDE, simple-swap SATA, and SAS
devices to the power supply and to the system board. (For the location of the
system-board connectors, see the User’s Guide on the IBM xSeries Documentation
CD.) Review the following information before connecting power and signal cables to
internal drives:
v The drives that are preinstalled in the server come with power and signal cables
attached. If you replace any drives, remember which cable is attached to which
drive.
v When you install a drive, make sure that one of the signal cable drive connectors
is connected to the drive and that the connector at the other end of the signal
cable is connected to the system board.
v If you have only one IDE device on a cable, it must be set as a master device.
v If two IDE devices are used on a single cable, one must be designated as the
master device and the other as the subordinate device; otherwise, the server
might not recognize some of the IDE devices. The master and subordinate
designation is determined by switch or jumper settings on each IDE device.
The following cables are provided:
v Power cables: Four-wire power cables connect the drives to the power supply.
At the end of these cables are plastic connectors that can be attached to
different drives; these connectors vary in size. Use either a four-wire power cable
or SATA power cable with SATA drives, but do not use both at the same time
(use one or the other).
v Signal cables: Signal cables are typically flat cables, also called ribbon cables,
that connect parallel IDE, SATA, SAS, and diskette drives to the system board.
Two or three types of signal cables come with the server:
– IDE: The wider IDE signal cable has three connectors. One of these
connectors is attached to the drive, one is a spare, and the third is attached to
the primary or secondary IDE connector on the system board. The spare
connector can be used to connect an additional IDE drive to the server.
The CD-ROM drive is attached to an ATA 100 signal cable. ATA 100 signal
cables are color-coded. The blue connector is attached to the system board.
The black connector is attached to the master IDE device. The gray middle
connector is attached to the subordinate IDE device.
24
xSeries 206m Types 8485 and 8490: Installation Guide
– (Optional) Diskette drive: The narrower signal cable has two connectors.
One is attached to the diskette drive, and the other is connected to the
connector (FDD1) on the system board.
– SATA: The narrower, black signal cable has two connectors. One is
connected to the non-hot-swap SATA drive, and the other is attached to the
connector on the system board.
Simple-swap SATA models come with four SATA cables that are already
connected to the system board and the back panel at the rear of the
simple-swap drives.
Hot-swap SATA models come with a single data cable that connects the
SAS/SATA controller to the hot-swap backplane. This cable provides inherent
connectivity for the four SATA drives that the server supports. Therefore,
additional cabling is not required for these drives.
– SAS: Hot-swap SAS models come with a single data cable that connects the
SAS/SATA controller to the hot-swap backplane. This cable provides inherent
connectivity for the four SAS drives that the server supports. Therefore,
additional cabling is not required for these drives.
For more information about the requirements for SAS cable and connecting
SAS devices, see the documentation that comes with these devices.
For a list of supported options for the server, see http://www.ibm.com/servers/
eserver/serverproven/compat/us/.
Installing an adapter
The following notes describe the types of adapters that the server supports and
other information that you must consider when installing an adapter.
v Locate the documentation that comes with the adapter and follow those
instructions in addition to the instructions in this section. If you need to change
the switch setting or jumper settings on the adapter, follow the instructions that
come with the adapter.
v Read the documentation that comes with your .
v The server comes with two PCI slots and two PCI Express slots on the main
system board. If your model comes with the optional PCI-X expansion card, it
provides two PCI-X slots.
v You can install full-length adapters that are included in the ServerProven list in
slots 1 through 6 (depending on your model).
v The 32-bit slots 3 and 4 support 5.0 V keyed PCI adapters; they do not support
3.3 V keyed adapters. Universal adapters are supported in slots 3 and 4 if they
are universally keyed and the server is not a hot-swap model. If you are installing
64-bit adapters in a hot-swap model, you must install them only in slots 5 and 6.
v An optional IBM Remote Supervisor Adapter II can be installed only in the
following slots: PCI slots 3 and 4. Use the ribbon cable that comes with this
adapter to connect it to the Remote Supervisor Adapter II cable connector on the
system board. For additional information, see the documentation that comes with
this adapter.
v When you start the server for the first time after installing a Remote Supervisor
Adapter II, the startup process will take several minutes longer than a typical
startup.
v If you install an optional IBM Remote Supervisor Adapter II, you must disconnect
the video cable from the system board and connect it to the optional Remote
Supervisor Adapter II.
v The optional ServeRAID-8i adapter can be installed only in PCI-X slot 6.
Chapter 2. Installing options
25
v The server scans PCI Express x1 slot 2, PCI Express x8 slot 1, and PCI slots 3
and 4 to assign system resources. If the optional PCI-X expansion card is
attached to the system board, the server also scans PCI-X slots 5 and 6 to
assign additional system resources. Then, the server starts the PCI devices in
the following order, if you have not changed the default startup sequence: PCI
Express x8 slot 1, PCI-X slot 5 (optional), PCI-X slot 6 (optional), PCI Express x1
slot 2, PCI slot 3, and PCI slot 4.
v For a list of supported options for the server, see http://www.ibm.com/servers/
eserver/serverproven/compat/us/.
For the locations of the expansion slots on the system board and the optional PCI-X
expansion card, see the User’s Guide on the IBM xSeries Documentation CD.
Attention: Static electricity that is released to internal server components when
the server is powered-on might cause the server to stop, which could result in the
loss of data. To avoid this potential problem, always use an electrostatic-discharge
wrist strap or other grounding system when working inside the server with the
power on.

Utility (also referred to as IBM ServeRAID-7e) to add RAID level-0 and level-1
functionality to the integrated Serial ATA controller (simple-swap SATA models) and
the SAS/SATA controller (hot-swap models). Be sure to use these programs as
described in this document. Use these programs to perform the following tasks:
v Configure a redundant array of independent disks (RAID) array
v View or change the RAID configuration and associated devices
When you are using the Adaptec RAID Configuration Utility programs and
SAS/SATA Configuration Utility program to configure and manage arrays, consider
the following information:
v The SAS/SATA controller with integrated RAID (hot-swap models) and the
integrated Serial ATA controller (simple-swap SATA models) with integrated SATA
RAID support RAID level-0 and level-1 with the option of having a hot-spare
drive. An optional ServeRAID controller provides additional RAID levels.
v You cannot use the ServerGuide Setup and Installation CD to configure the
integrated Serial ATA controller with integrated RAID and the SAS/SATA controller
with integrated RAID.
v Hard disk drive capacities affect how you create arrays. Drives in an array can
have different capacities, but the RAID controller treats them as if they all have
the capacity of the smallest hard disk drive.

Configuring the Ethernet controller
The Ethernet controller is integrated on the system board. It provides an interface
for connecting to a 10-Mbps, 100-Mbps, or 1-Gbps network and provides full-duplex
(FDX) capability, which enables simultaneous transmission and reception of data on
the network. If the Ethernet ports in the server support auto-negotiation, the
controller detects the data-transfer rate (10BASE-T, 100BASE-TX, or 1000BASE-T)
and duplex mode (full-duplex or half-duplex) of the network and automatically
operates at that rate and mode.
You do not have to set any jumpers or configure the controller. However, you must
install a device driver to enable the operating system to address the controller. To
find updated information about configuring the controller, complete the following
steps.
Note: Changes are made periodically to the IBM Web site. The actual procedure
might vary slightly from what is described in this document.
